On May 23, 1945, Mission #181 is undertaken by the B-29s of the 20th Air Force against Tokyo, Japan. The incendiary bombs dropped that night would turn the Japanese capital into a raging firestorm. The print shows a stricken B-29 named "Eddie Allen" coming off the target with a fire beginning near the #1 engine from a dud anti-aircraft round. While the "Eddie Allen" would survive the mission, it would be her last, as the damage she received that night made her unsafe to fly again.

Note: like all Valiant Clan prints, the actual print has a white border with text at the bottom displaying the aircraft name and a description of the action portrayed. (See the P-51B Mustang as an example.)  The above scan only shows the image (and not the surrounding border or text), and is merely meant to give you an idea of the image content.
